    After 43 years shooting, hunting, reloading for and with dozens of brands of rifles, I just bought my first Remington 700 rifle!

    Very slightly used 700 SPS Tactical, .223, 20”.

    Traded off one of my Savage 12FVs in .223.

    Have been working up some loads the past few days and hit on a SUPER accurate load using Sierra 69gr MatchKings.

    3 trips to the range and have it nailed. The Savage I traded took 10-15 tries to get the same results. Not bashing Savage as my 22-250 Savage bench/prairie dog gun is seriously amazing, but the screwy feeding/ejecting deal with them made me look elsewhere, again.

    Best regards all!

    Hi Mike and welcome to the forum. Congratulations on your first Remington 700. It is a little quite around here now that some many sports posts and ads have cluttered the site, but hopefully you will both add and gain some knowledge here.
